3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brennan’s. Pours a very dark brown with garnet highlights. Almost no head and almost no lacing. Gotta enjoy that reddish tint in the color though. Aroma has roasted malts, cocoa powder and some earthiness. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruit, some chocolate, faint coffee and a dry saltiness that I would say is oyster. Finishes sweet and somewhat short and dry. Hmmm. I would say the "best" oyster stout I have had, somewhat damning with faint praise.

Pours nearly black with a tan head that disappears to a rim. Aroma is cocoa and roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Taste is more coffee and oatmeal than chocolate. Roasted malt backbone. I want or taste oysters on the half shell in there, but I'm not sure. A bit shallow. Decent but not too memorable.

Decent enough stout. On the sharper side with the malts taking a back drop to the taste of alcohol. Its ok but I was left disappointed expecting something better.

Very dark brown color with brown foam. Aromas of oatmeal and roasted malts, but on the weak side. Palate was smooth with some body to it, not the heaviest beer though, somewhere in the middle. Tasted mainly of roasted malt with lovely dark aftertaste. Over all quite nice beer to try.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Roasted silky coffee aroma with some chocolate. Almost black with a dark tan head. Nice clean, roasty flavour with a positive glibness. Very high carbonation for a stout. A little lacking in character really.
